Entry Description

Owensburg – (Greene County) - Sheriff’s Deputies and Troopers responded to a call of domestic disturbance just before 10:00 a.m. earlier today at 6544 State Road 45 in Owensburg. The officers were met by an unidentified male in the residence who immediately opened fire upon them. Officers returned fire in an attempt to stop the male’s deadly force, all while tending to the deputies who had been shot. Troopers at the scene eventually removed the deputies safely from the scene.

Once the deputies were taken to an awaiting ambulance, a perimeter was established around the residence and the Indiana State Police Emergency Response Section (ERS) was called to the scene. The ERS team then utilized the Indiana State Police Explosive Ordnance Disposal Team’s Robot to make entry into the residence, where it found the male subject, Michael Lane Jr., 25 of Owensburg, deceased.

The nature of the original domestic disturbance is not known at this time, nor are the specifics regarding the shots that were fired. The investigation is ongoing. I will update you as more information becomes available.


Deputy Jim O’Malley – hit by gunfire, taken to IU Health Bloomington.
Deputy Brad Deckard – hit by gunfire, taken to IU Health Bloomington and released.

 All subjects are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
